Warm, Flexible Room for Foster Children

2010-06-gqfoster.jpgQ: I need some help with a room in our house. We are foster parents so the ages and number of kids in our house changes. We have a room for them right now with an IKEA Kura reversible bed and an IKEA Gulliver crib/toddler bed. Right now, the room is pretty bare. I would like to make it more inviting and warm (continued below).

We are licensed for boys and girls, infant to six years old. The color is Warm Muffin by Behr which I really like so I'm not interested in re-painting. Mostly, I am concerned about finding some gender neutral linens for the bed and crib. We have nice white, wooden blinds but curtains would be a nice touch since the blinds don't totally keep out the light during nap time. I wouldn't mind adding a rug in the room as well. Thanks for helping us prepare a room for the sweet kiddos that come into our lives.

Editor: We like the paint color, too. Red or turquoise come to mind as potential accent and/or bedding colors that pair nicely with yellow and that are also gender neutral. Readers, what do you think? What other ideas can you send Krystal's way for this room?
